Action / Sports / Team Portrait Photographers Wanted - Kansas City

A leading cheerleading and dance photography company seeks talented individuals for immediate employment as ACTION and TEAM PORTRAIT photographers.

All applicants should be available to travel within the domestic US from Fridays through Mondays. Applicants must possess a highly developed sense of timing and have the ability to perform in-camera cropping since we do not make use of a rapid-fire, hold-the-finger-on-the-button style of photography. Images go straight from the camera to the customer within seconds without any editing. Candidates will be required to balance quality (based on timing and framing) and quantity of images.

Applicants must have the following equipment:

- A professional DSLR camera and back up camera body that are capable of tethered shooting to a laptop (tethered shooting experience is a plus)
- A 70-200mm f2.8 lens for action OR an appropriate portrait/wide angle lens for team portraits
- Windows based laptop or a Mac laptop running a Windows OS via Boot Camp (not via Parallels or other virtual machine)
- monopod

Applicants should have the following skills/attributes:

- Basic computer skills (Networking and advanced skills are a definite plus but not required)
- Professional, mature and team-oriented attitude
- Ability to work well in loud, fast paced and team-spirited environments

The events that are photographed can involve long days with early start times. Applicants must be willing and able to be part of setting up strobes and various network components.

Compensation is a day rate of $350 plus addition compensation for travel and setup. Travel and lodging arrangements are paid for by the company and set up in advance.

If interested, please reply to this posting with:
1. Your interest in action photography, team portrait photography or both
2. A complete list of your equipment (camera bodies, lenses, laptop)
3. A link to your online portfolio that best reflects your abilities as an action photographer. These photos should demonstrate use of in-camera cropping and timing.
4. Finally, the inclusion of a link to your professional profile such as LinkedIn would be helpful but is not required.

The season of events runs from the end of October until the end of May, with multiple events located throughout the nation every weekend - there is work available for the right candidates immediately!
Good news! We have your resume on file, you can use our Quick Apply function to easily apply to this job.
